This fall, Burning Spear Pub­lications (BSP) is preparing to ex­pand its catalog, printing new pam­phlets on today’s African liberation strategy and reprinting popular out-of-print titles. This African-owned and operated media institution will also be introducing several publica­tions into the e-book format, mak­ing them accessible on electronic devices throughout the world.

It also has a catalog of books, pamphlets, DVDs, CDs and gear available for purchase at select bookstores, via mail order and online at burning­
Theory is key to winning freedom
Resistance to imperialist op­pression and aggression is growing throughout the world, but without a strong theoretical foundation and strategic direction, grounded in the ideology of African International­ism, popular movements often do not achieve the long-term transfor­mation required for the freedom of oppressed peoples.
African Internationalism clearly explains the basis for the poverty and suffering of African and all colo­nized peoples as rooted in the de­velopment of parasitic capitalism, whereby white wealth was built through the theft of African labor and natural resources.
A vision and successful strat­egy to build a world where all peo­ples can benefit from the fruits of their own land and labor can only be seen through the eyes of the revolutionary African working class in alignment with the poor peas­antry.
This is the perspective found in the materials distributed by Burn­ing Spear Publications. This is the perspective that is leading the way in revolutionary struggle throughout the world.

Burning Spear Publications has launched a campaign to raise $3,000 to expand its catalog as well as to maintain its Prisoner Spear Fund that pays postage for the monthly shipping of free copies of The Burning Spear newspaper to African prisoners locked down in concentration camps throughout the U.S.
